Sorry, could you clarify, I can't understand.
What should be the error message here and why at all we should have an error here?
Are we forced to use this code to pop first element in array? :
var array = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
let x = array[0...].popFirst()
print(x!) // 1
print(array) // [2,3,4,5]
And why we shouldn't be allowed to have popFirst() for array? Yes, it is expensive,
but is it a right reason to disallow it totally? In many situations we have a small
arrays and don't care so much how fast the first element will be pop'ed.
I hope I'm just missing something.
